May I Humbly Suggest Why?
This evening is to be another media fest with a second leaders' "debate". Anyone who thinks the last stage managed crap was a debate is too illiterate to know the meaning of the word. Back to the one today. As they all three posture on the stage and before a world wide audience not one of these men will have the cojones to suggest a referendum on "In or out of Afghanistan". As our troops do what they do so well and die or suffer horrific injuries, nothing will cut to the emotion of this wasteful and unwinnable conflict. Our rights as citizens to force a decision will be fobbed off and yet again the ruling elite wannabees will not face serious scrutiny.
Our shame and shared guilt is this. Press and any outside interested parties have been silenced for the duration of this phony election circus. We are denied any knowledge of how the Musa Quala operation is proceeding and I rather suspect any fatalities may also be hushed up. As our forces sweat, toil, languish and die this bloody farce is allowed to hog the headlines as we are all given a metaphorical pat on the head. That is in addition to Snotpicker Supreme's devious disenfranchisement of your vote. Well, any troops who just might pick up this post, the politicians may be ignoring you but I, and many thousands like me are not. Sadly, we too get swamped by the powerful forces that now control us all. Truth is we need you back home more than you can possibly realise. God bless and hope you keep safe.
